Thurlow Lieurance Indian Flute book

Thurlow Lieurance was one of the first performers to ever use the Native American flute in contemporary music. His well known songs like “By the Waters of Minnetonka”, “Wi-UM”, and “By Singing Waters” were known for his adaptations of traditional indigenous music to the modern stage. He collected several Native American flutes of which 12 have survived the ravages of time and are presented here in this in-depth study by Mrs. Betty Hensley. Mrs. Hensley is an accomplished flutist, having a large collection of world flutes and able to play them all. She brought her knowledge of the wind instrument’s tunings and characteristics to a unique view, found in this book. This new revised edition features the 12 flutes studied as to their history, tunings, tone and unique nature with four pages of color pictures of them. An accompanying CD allows listeners to hear the sounds of the old flutes, and enjoy the melodic works of Lieurance performed by Mrs. Hensley. Published by the Oregon Flute Store - Edited by Douglas Spotted Eagle.

Just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the cases you made for me last year. I like to take a flute along on hikes to special places, and the Hummingbird is just perfect for that. When I go somewhere to play with several flutes and both cases, the cases get as many comments from people as the flutes! I always get asked about them when traveling through airports.

The beauty and craftsmanship of your cases is incomparable, and they give me a wonderful feeling every time I pick them up. And knowing that they were made by you, and not in a factory halfway around the world, makes them even more special. Thanks again for all your help selecting my cases and fabrics, and for doing such a terrific job on them! As my flute collection grows, when I need more cases you can be sure that I'll be calling.
